Thanks to the internet, a lot of people contact me about my books. These are usually folks who have read one (or more) of them and want to comment on some aspect of what I’ve written.
But I was surprised to hear from a Canadian company that designs and prints premium wildlife T‑shirts for animal lovers. Dark & Wilder was created by Aimé Huot and Ashley Miron and is based in Ottawa, Ontario. The company is named after their two dogs and promotes healthy wildlife populations.
But what really made me smile was their comment that they’d read a quote by me and found it so profound that they created a meme/quote to post on their Facebook and Instagram pages.
My words and an Algonquin wolf, wow.
Aimé and Ashley’s pairing of words and wolf is especially poignant as the Algonquin wolf, now only found in parts of Ontario, has been classified as threatened since June 2016.
Sometimes called the eastern wolf, Algonquin wolves are threatened by low population numbers, interbreeding with western coyotes and human development, as well as hunting, trapping and being hit by vehicles.
